About

I plan to start my own little 3rd party publishing business and this is the Chaotic Noodle Logo! I'll be branding the project under this company name. :)

I designed a special calendar program in Microsoft Access that lets me build a custom fantasy game world calendar. By entering a few parameters, the program builds a uniform calendar. The first screen collects the necessary information about the weekdays associated with the calendar. 

Screen One: Configuring the weekday selections.
Screen One: Configuring the weekday selections.

The second screen collects the months and the length of each. 

Screen Two: Configuring the month selections.
Screen Two: Configuring the month selections.

The next screen collects information about the seasons and their lengths. 

Screen Three: Configuring the season selections.
Screen Three: Configuring the season selections.

 The last screen collects information about the orbits of one or more moons. 

Screen Four: Configuring the moon selections.
Screen Four: Configuring the moon selections.

The last piece is a brief control that shows the name of the campaign, the season and day of the week (with icon), the year, the time and a visual display of the phases of the moons.

The Goal: a calendar control for tracking the passage of campaign time.

I also went to some effort of the icons sets:

The goal of the project will be to convert the existing conception into software for use on any platform, especially Android or iPhone devices.

P.S. Wow! I didn't realize it's been four years already? Here's the original blog post: http://awizardindallas.blogspot.com/2010/01/rpg-calendar-ware.html

Time to get this out in the world! :)

Risks and challenges

Once the project is funded, I'll need to hire a more capable developer than I to take my work and build it into finished working software. The cost for this is relatively unknown, so is a risk, but should be manageable, since this is a relatively small software project.
